After a close study of Egyptian relics and paintings in museums and private collections, and after a perusal of the works of leading Egyptologists and excavators, researcher Mary Sutherland, who was unable to account for what she discovered, managed to catalog a few key examples concerning the anomaly of the Caucasian presence in the land of the Nile:

The Disciples of Horus
We learn from official sources (Christian, Judaic, and other) that the symbols found throughout Western countries, on flags and state regalia, etc, comes from these spurious migrating "Semitic" tribes. We are told that the symbolism originates with these tribes and that it goes back to the dawn of time. But we also know what "dawn of time" means officially. We know that it refers to the period between 7,000 and 11,000 years ago with the Age which had its beginnings in the Levant (Middle-East). As we are slowly beginning to realize these dates are not the true beginning of mankind's cultural and technical history.
The perceptive researcher realizes that there were extremely advanced civilizations in existence thousands of years previous to these untenable official dates. Clearly, we are not meant to look back too far, and are not meant to believe in ante-diluvian civilizations. But what happens if we do look back this far? What happens if we do find evidence that proves that man was "civilized" aeons before 11,000 years ago? Certainly, it does not take a lot of investigating or proof to understand that great civilizations of the world could not just blossom into existence with all kinds of fully-fledged customs, idioms and techniques,but with no antecedent stages which must have existed. Particularly, in the case of Egypt, we marvel at the construction of the great pyramid, the Osirieon, and temples of Karnak and Luxor, etc, but cannot account for the technology which built them.
The Yew Tree - One of the most sacred of all trees in Druidism. The taller and thinner variety of yew (similar to the Cypress), known as fastigiata, grew abundantly throughout Western Ireland and was sacred to the ancient warrior queen and goddess of the Tuatha de Danaan, Banbha, after whom Ireland was once named. Botanists believe all other Yews in the world to be descended from two Irish trees. County "Mayo" comes from the word meaning "Yew forest." Interestingly, the most sacred Egyptian groves, orchards, and temple precincts appear to have had these Irish yews in pride of place. According to Ralph Ellis, the Yew was the Egyptian's original Tree of Life, and it featured prominently in Egypt's most sacred mystery school traditions and initiatory rites. It was a symbol of death and underworld rites. The oldest implements in the world, dating to over 50,000 years ago were made of Yew wood. The tree may have been considered sacred because it poisoned all animals that ate of its bark or leaves except the stag and deer. The deer and stag were supremely sacred to the Irish Druids. The Yew can still frequently be found in British churchyards. Given that the Yews are older than Christian churches, it follows that Christian churches and cathedrals were deliberately positioned near to the tree for symbolic purposes. A study of the Yew tree serves to confirm the West to East movement of the elements of religion. The last letter of the Irish Ogham alphabet "I" was connected to the Yew tree. The letter turns up as the Hebrew Yod, the first letter of the name of god Jehovah whom Moses suggestively met at a "burning bush." The word yew may be connected to the word Jew, from Yahu or Juda. So, were the "Jews" originally "men of the Yew" - that is initiates of Druidic colleges?Although equally magnificent temples and megaliths exist in Ireland, North America and Mexico, although entire lost cities are found beneath the oceans, and although the vast majority of words, place-names, and personal names in the Bible, are of Irish origin we would rather live with mysteries and unsolvable conundrums than face the actual truth. In almost every case where a major site exists, or where a great civilization existed, we find the same refrain from the modern inhabitants. Either we are told that "godlike strangers" erected the sites or that technically superior semi-divine ancestors, of whom we now suspiciously find no trace, did it. Archaeologists are more than lax to explain who these foreigners or mysterious ancestors were. The world over, the legends affirm that indigenous forebears were not the the builders, astronomers, and healers. Investigators have habitually looked to every country except Ireland for their answers. It is almost comical to say that we can be certain that Ireland played a seminal role merely because the laws of exclusion are in its favor. All other countries have been studied and can be struck off as originators of civilization. So, dare we now, at long last, face the actual truth which has lain in plain sight for so long? Dare we examine the evidence for the Irish Origins of Civilization, and have done with the damnable conundrums?
One of the most important finds of Western peoples within the land of Egypt came about when the great Egyptologist and archaeologist Professor Walter B. Emery (1903-1971) was excavating tombs at Saqqara, one of the oldest and largest necropolis in Egypt. The remains discovered there by Professor Emery were blonde haired and of fair complexion. These individuals were revered and honored by the Egyptians as specially endowed elite. Authors, Vittorio Di Cesare and Adriano Forgione, write about Emery's enigmatic discoveries in their article Malta: Skulls of the Mother Goddess:
Professor Emery wrote on his finds in his book Archaic Egypt: Culture and Civilization in Egypt Five Thousand Years Ago:
According to the ancient tablets known as The History of Thoth, the Atlantean, the Shemsu Hor, or Disciples of Horus, were a race of enlighteners who dwelt on ten pre-diluvian islands. One of their magi was the god Thoth:
The term Shemsu derives, most probably, from the Akkadian shamash, meaning "serpent." The word is very like the Irish Sheamus or Seamus. The term Hor, for Horus the falcon or hawk god, represented the Ari, or Aryans. The word Horus, from Har, or Hari, meant Arya. The letter "H" was often used in the same way as "the" or "Le" in French. Har or Harri, was "the Ari." The eagle or hawk was the symbol of royalty. However, it primarily and originally signified spiritual status. (The name Harris, or Harrison, from haoris, means "hawk" or "son of the hawk"). In the year 1907 the Egyptian government decided to raise the level of the great Aswan Dam, in Southern Egypt, by seven meters. The project meant the destruction, by flooding, of acres of land containing many burial grounds and tombs. A hurried examination of the bodies from some Nubian tombs was made by Sir Grafton Elliot Smith who soon discovered, to his amazement, that the skulls and bones of the bodies under examination were different from those of the inhabitants of both Nubia and Egypt, even though there were Egyptian characteristics to the physiognomy. In his book The Royal Mummies, published in 1912, Smith wrote of his strange alien finds:
Queen Nefertiti - her daughter is buried in IrelandWe believe that the decision to flood the sacred Nubian plains of the Northern Sudan was a clever ploy to conceal the burial grounds of the Western peoples who had influenced Egyptian culture. In ancient times Nubia was an independent region considered sacred by the Egyptians who thought of it as the realm of the gods. The Nile flowed down through the mountains of Nubia and so anyone buried in that area, by request or by tradition, were very esteemed.
The Caucasian features described by Sir Elliot Smith are to be seen on the face of Queen Nefertiti, her sister Mutnodjmet (wife of Heremheb), and her daughter Meritaten (Scota). Indeed, there is little doubt in our minds that Nefertiti and her family were of Irish ancestry. This explains why Scota, her eldest daughter, traveled to Ireland, by way of Spain, after the fall of Akhenaton's (Atonist) Dynasty, and why her grave was found, not in Egypt, but in County Kerry Ireland.
When modern academics composed reference books about early Egyptian history, they scrupulously avoided mention of the impressive body of ancient evidence attesting to the celestial rulers of predynastic Egypt- Tony Bushby (The Secret in the Bible) The twentieth prayer of the 141st chapter of the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead, is dedicated "to the Goddess greatly beloved, with red hair - E. A. W. Budge (The Book of the Dead) The predynastic Egyptians, that is to say, that stratum of them which was indigenous to North Africa, belonged to a white or light-skinned race with fair hair, who in many particulars resembled the Libyans, who in later historical times lived very near the western bank of the Nile - E. A. W. Budge (Egypt in the Neolithic and Archaic Periods)

An Egyptian woman with apparently Caucasian (Indo-European) ancestry
The final resting place of Menes in Ireland was discovered by Professor Waddell, at Knockmany (Knock-Manes) in the southern part of County Tyrone, not far from Lough Erne. Inscriptions found on boulder stones at the site were in Sumerian script and were identical to those found at Menes' Egyptian tomb site. Professor Waddell wrote of his unique and momentous finds:
Queen and Pharaoh Hatshepsut, of the 18th Dynasty King Menes of Sumeria and Egypt is referred to in the Hindu Puranas as Aha Men, and as Asa Manj - "the Far Shooter," a title which reminds us distinctly of the Biblical Saul and David, and also the Irish sun god Lugh "The Long Arm," keeper of the great Lance. The term Asa, meant "strong" or "valiant." In the Hindu Mahabharata Menes is Manasyu, whose title was Prabhu.
This term comes from Prahu or Parahu, or Paraa, which is the possible origin of Pharaoh. The Hindi word meant "chief" or "father." Tea Tephi, an Egyptian queen, lies near Tara, a location probably named after her. The name Tara is believed to have come from Temair or Temor meaning "mound of Tea." Mummified Barbary apes have been discovered at Navan Ireland, and entries concerning places in Ireland have been found in Egyptian papyri. British-Israelites declare the tomb of the prophet Jeremiah to be in Ireland (at Lough Crew, County Meath) and believe him to have brought to Tara the coronation stone ("Stone of Fal") upon which the Irish chieftains were crowned. However, when anecdotes such as this are broached, scholars are quick to say that there "may have been" commerce between Egypt, Phoenicia, and Ireland after all. This majority of this commerce is dated to between 600 BC and 700 AD.Is it really far-fetched to suppose Egyptian theology and civilization to be Irish in origin? We do not think so. As Barry Fell and others have shown, the Celts traveled to America long before other groups, and were plying their trade and building settlements there hundreds of years before the arrival of Columbus.
When anecdotes such as this are broached, scholars are quick to say that there "may have been" commerce between Egypt, Phoenicia and Ireland after all, as if there was some real doubt on the matter.

A red-haired corpse was found dating from the pre-dynastic period, 3,300 BC, nick-named "Ginger." One of Horus' titles was "Horus of the blue eyes" (E. A. W. Budge)
Maat (Ma'at) - Mother of ThothAn Irish name for Druidism is Maithis, and that includes the Egyptian dual Thoth called Mat - Gerald Massey Their mounds and megaliths bear inscriptions and dedications to the gods of light. Moreover, Egyptian words have been found in America. Many Algonquian Indian words are identical not only to Gaelic words, but Egyptian ones. The image of the Egyptian "Eye of Ra" has been found near to images of the Celtic stag-horned god Cernunnos. Pre-historic Irish designs have been discovered in Oklahoma and Florida, and proof that sea voyages between Europe, Britain, and South and North America, has come to light, revealing just how inaccurate are the official records of history. That the Irish, the French Gauls, the Phoenicians, and Egyptians, frequented the East coast of North America, and that they were in close relation to one another proves that they had close dealings in Europe and Asia. All doubt upon the matter is dispelled once we objectively examine the evidence.
It is not far-fetched at all to suppose that Egyptian religion and culture was influenced by foreigners from Western lands? After all, it is a fact that Indo-Europeans, or Aryans, brought cultural elements to Northern India and that India's culture was subsequently enriched by the philosophy and moral teachings of the Aryan king Asoka. It is a fact that the Persian Moslems brought to India highly sophisticated cultural elements as they established their Mughal Dynasty. And it is openly accepted that Buddhism, born in India, moved eastward to dramatically influence and enrich Chinese culture.
It is also understood that innumerable "saints" of Christianity were based on earlier pagan prototypes (see Appendix 2). This assimilation of cultural and theological idioms is officially accepted. Nevertheless, the intense and irrational antipathy regarding the Western origin of civilization persists.
It has taken centuries for academia to begrudgingly entertain even this simple provable idea although, ultimately, it is still tantamount to academic heresy to pronounce Egypt to be the cradle of civilization and the originator of Christian theology. Nonetheless, academics will sooner muse over and ratify commerce from East to West than it will endorse traversal from West to East. Indeed, this rarer kind of speculation, asserted first by Comyns Beaumont, Anna Wilkes, and Conor Mac Dari, is quite taboo. Regardless, the reason why Pharaohs and Pharaoh's daughters are found interned in the far off land of Ireland is because Ireland was their ancestral homeland to which they were returning. It was from there that their fore-fathers had come bearing the knowledge which enabled Egypt's fine civilization to form and which initiated the construction of the Great Pyramid and Sphinx. No other agency, not even an Egyptian one, can rationally claim responsibility for their construction.These great edifices stand unclaimed. The world endures a mystery concerning their origins and marvels at their majesty. But again, we submit that the mystery exists in lieu of the truth that should be known had it not been suppressed. The claimant now stands in the shadows of history rather than in the spotlight. Men have been conditioned to look for answers in the wrong places. This is the reason why sense cannot be made of the antiquities of Egypt. When we look to the right place and to the right history, we will have our answers, but not before.

Thera, Tin, and the Aryan Invasion by Tom Slattery
by Tom Slattery
Three history-making events appear to have happened around 1500 B.C., and all three may be closely related.
One: The Greek volcanic island of Thera in the Mediterranean exploded around then. It may have been the largest volcanic event to occur in human history.
Two: The great Aryan Invasion originating out of central Asia and continuing down into northern India was in progress. While there is some argument that it was not a genuine invasion, a movement of people does appear to have taken place down through Iran (which derives its present name from the event), and this movement, as preserved in the Rig Veda, does appear to have been at least partly a military conquest. An important offshoot of this invasion, the Mitanni of biblical Haran, played an important part in Western history.
Three: The Late Bronze Age began. The Late Bronze Age is the true Bronze Age. The Early Bronze Age and the Middle Bronze Age used a different metal, an alloy of arsenic and copper. Only in the Late Bronze Age do we see the real bronze alloy of tin and copper.
The largest and most easily mined deposits of rare tin ore were scattered in a curving geological line that runs from just east of the great salt lake called Issyk Kul in Khirghizia to just east of the present city of Bukhara in Uzbekistan. On Map 4 in his book Tin in Antiquity, R. D. Pennhallurick names the mine locations, Sarszhas, Sarybulak, Aktyuz, Uchkoshkon, Maikhoura, Changhalli, Kochkarli, and Karnab. And during the Bronze Age these were some of a very few places in the Old World that were known to have tin ore, and this was largest lode of easily mined tin ore.
And the Aryan Invasion appears to have swept south from this area. There is something quite telling about the Aryan Invasion in this regard. The "ar" sound in Aryan appears to have the same Indo-European root as words for "ore" in various Indo-European-derived languages, "ore" in English, "erz" in German, for instance.
They were thus the "Ore People." Apparently they did not differentiate between "ore" and its product, "metal." So they may have called themselves the "Metal People." This comes in contention with the commonly held opinion that the "Aryan" name meant "noble," or "superior." I would guess that this nomenclature came after the fact. The Aryans dominated other peoples and became superior in the social stratigraphy, and they were thus able to be noble. It is hard to dismiss the idea of "Ore People" as perhaps having been their original designation for themselves.
Following their initial successes, the Aryans may have maintained exclusive control over tin ore sources, trading not only cash-credits for it, but political-military influence as well. One is led to suspect something like this happened in the case of the Aryan Mitanni who settled in upper Mesopotamia. They came to play a strange large role in distant Egyptian history. Might this have been due to imperial Egyptian need for tin to make bronze?
A first note of possible Aryan Invasion influence in Egyptian history comes with the Hyksos (literally "People Under Foreign Rulers") takeover of northern Egypt for a century between about 1650 to 1550 B.C. Introduction of war chariots into Egypt occurs then. Then come the Mitanni - preserved in biblical text with Abraham's sojourn in the country of the Mitanni called Haran - who several times "married" into the Egyptian royal family. And this may be a glimpse at a larger picture behind the success of the Aryan Invasion.
The Eighteenth Dynasty pharaoh Tuthmosis IV (1398 BC to 1388 BC) "married," as his primary wife, a Mitanni princess, breaking ancient Egyptian tradition of matrilineal succession. Their kid, half-Mitanni pharaoh Amenhotep III, continued this break by "marrying" the daughter of his father's prime minister, a clearly foreign man named Yuya whom Ahmed Osman believes may have been the biblical Joseph (of Genesis).
Their kid, Amenhotep IV, initiated a new pseudo-monotheism worshipping an aspect of the sun called the Aten, changed his name to Akhn-Aten to reflect it, and tossed out the old religion and its old familiar pantheon. And it is interesting to note that this Aten's name was Shu, the Aryan-Mitanni god of the sun.
So beginning with the Hyksos and mostly ending with the end of Eighteenth Dynasty, there appears to have been a possible Aryan connection. The first seems to have been the Hyksos. The second is the definitely Aryan-Mitanni influence in Egyptian history growing out of several marriages to Mitanni princesses and resulting in a monumental change in the state religion initiating worship of an apparent Aryan deity. And all of this may have been due to an interest by the Egyptian ruling class in the most vital strategic mineral of the Bronze Age, tin.
And it may interesting to note that the ancient Egyptian word for "tin" seems to have been dm, sometimes written d)m, apparently for an unknown Egyptian aspiration or vowel. This does not sound like the Indo-European derived word we hear in Greek as kassiteros. The ancient Egyptian word seems remarkably like our modern English word "tin," or the German "zinn."
Might we still be using the ancient Egyptian word? Might this be because tin once played a far more important role in a European history connected with ancient Egypt than we have so far discovered? The only large sources of tin outside of central Asia known anywhere in the West in the Bronze Age were in Cornwall-Brittany and on the present German-Czech border. And since it was the vital strategic mineral of the Bronze Age, Egypt would have gotten at least some tin from there.
A volcanic island named Thera exploded circa 1550 B.C. The Aryan Invasion, which included an offshoot called the Mitanni, is centered around that time. The Late Bronze Age, the true Bronze Age, that used an alloy made from tin and copper rather than the earlier alloy made from arsenic and copper, began about then. They seem at first sight to be intimately related to one another. And if this is true, we are what we are today because of it, more than has previously been suspected.
Mythical or Historical? The Figure of Abraham
The Mitanni tablets demonstrate some historical patterns that are also in the Abraham story in Genesis
The Historical Figure of Abraham
Research By Kerry A. Shirts
These are musings concerning the scholars' attitudes on the historical Abraham. It is not very complete, and I'll add to it as I can, but there is enough here to indicate that the case against Abraham ever existing is not an open and shut one. This is of interest to students of the Book of Abraham.
Genesis 12 - 17 is the main biblical information we have concerning the Covenant of Abraham. Abraham is essentially promised that his posterity will be as innumerable as the stars. Through him all the nations of the earth would be blessed. G. Ernest Wright noted that "God's law in the covenant was not conceived as a penal burden to be borne. It was God's gracious gift to Israel that the nation... Totalitarianism was lifted from the earthly to the heavenly sphere. The law thus envisaged a security and a freedom for the individual, who was not to be unrighteously oppressed by human power." He further noted that "...the relationship of God to man was conceived under these forms of covenant as possessing an eternal and universal character." In fact, "Covenant created the community which gave meaning to the individual," a concept not missed by Eugene England's recent sharp insightful book, Why the Church is as True as the Gospel.
Various biblical scholars used to postulate that the items in these chapters, Genesis 12-17, were the invention of later writers, and added into the narrative much later than the actual occurrences were supposed to have happened. Many scholars claimed that Abraham is merely an historical myth with no basis in reality. While Anton Jirku acknowledges that Abraham is neither pure poem (Dichtung) nor pure truth (Wahrheit), Walter Beltz simply dismisses him as fictional myth (eine mythische Person... Die Gestalt Abrahams ist eine mythische Schopfung.) Other scholars have not argued so much against his historicity as to the fact that the biblical account of his life "is an inextricable tangle of history and myth." We will assume, for the sake of this paper, as well as the evidence of the Book of Abraham itself, that Abraham was a real historical person in an authentic historical time, though even his dating has proven difficult. Many historians and Bible scholars today, as opposed to many in the 1960's, admit that historical situations and peoples are really what the ancient authors were trying to portray or remember, rather than merely inventing them for didactic purposes.
